Red Tape Challenge
The Government has launched its Red Tape Challenge – this is the Government asking us to consider which regulations ought to be scrapped due to the amount of Red Tape we have. What is essential for them is that the public respond to their albeit weighted questions. – ‘ should this be scrapped’ coming highest in the list.
The Government are asking for our help ‘You have to deal with these rules day-in, day-out. This website is for you to tell us which regulations are working and which are not; what should be scrapped, what should be saved and what should be simplified.’ I would encourage you to add your voice to this website, among the laws they consider redundant and up for scrapping are the Equalities Act and the Climate Change Bill amongst others.
Listen to Friends of the Earth talking about why we fought for this law and why it ought to be maintained.
